Pitching Matchups

Looking at pitching matchups some owners might be trying to decide on. Emphasis on pitchers owned in 70%-40% of leagues AKA the streaming tier. Did not include obvious starters like Max Scherzer and Chris Sale on days with a full slate of games. *September call ups + several teams going with a 6-man rotation mean these matchups will be very fluid throughout this week and the rest of the season*
